PHP money format with spaces

I am wondering if there is a way to separate thousands with space character.

For example:

$number = 21234.56;
setlocale(LC_ALL, 'pl_PL.utf8');
echo money_format('%i', $number);


is giving me:

21.234,56 PLN


And I want:

21 234,56 PLN


I don't want to make str_replace. I am sure there is a better way.

Answer

You can use number-format. For example :

echo number_format($number, 2, ',', ' ');

But you will have to put the unit yourself.

Otherwise, this comment of the money_format documentation page gives a version of the function with some code that you can modify to change the thousand separator.

You can also do something like this :

$locale = localeconv();
$text = money_format('%i', $number);
$text = str_replace($locale['mon_thousands_sep'], ' ', $text);
